'He's doing well': James Ward-Prowse hails Southampton teammate Danny Ings
The Saints striker joined the St Mary's club permanently in the summer and is in good form for Ralph Hasenhuttl and co.
Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse has spoken highly of teammate Danny Ings, praising him for his efforts this season both in terms of goals and in terms of workrate (Daily Echo).
Ings joined the Saints permanently from fellow Premier League club Liverpool in a reported £20million deal (BBC Sport) this summer, although he had been on loan at St Mary's from Anfield for the 2018-19 season.
The 27-year-old has done well for Southampton this term despite Ralph Hasenhuttl's charges struggling to find their feet in the early stages of the campaign, with three goals and one assist for the league's 17th-placed side (Transfermarkt).
Ward-Prowse was speaking to the Daily Echo about the need for the Saints to regroup during the international break and for the squad to take a look at itself in a bid to get out of their league slump, claiming that "we all, individually, need to be better".
When asked about Ings, who scored Southampton's lone goal in the 4-1 defeat to Chelsea last time out, the £45,000-per-week star (Spotrac) said: "He is doing well.
"You can see from some of the goals he has scored this season the workrate he gives us which really sets the tone for the way we play. He’s deserved the goals and I am sure with his quality and his workrate that plenty more goals will come for him."
Ings has scored 13 goals and claimed four assists overall in Southampton colours (Transfermarkt) and is contracted to the St Mary's outfit until the summer of 2022.
